How To Make A Paper Aircraft That Flies


Hey, young texting whippersnappers and tiny keyboard pros. Before those little square boxes you all can’t separate yourselves from were born, there was another way to send a girl a note, or a buddy test answers in class while the teacher’s back was turned. It was known as the paper airplane. Yea – whatcha know bout that?

The simple, resourceful and effective tactic involved writing your message on a piece of binder paper, then folding it into a flight friendly design and sending it over the heads of your fellow classmates to its destination. The process had a MacGyver kind of cool to it.

Unfortunately, too real video games, flight simulators, mobile texting and messaging clients grounded the paper planes of yesteryear. They are a forgotten art.

However for those that wish to lavish in a little nostalgia, and the curious that want to make a little magic happen with paper, I found a video that shows you how to craft a super simple aircraft design from a small piece of paper that will fly as long as you’re willing to walk behind it. Check it out and enjoy! Drones eat your hearts out.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
